The West Virginia University volleyball team is just outside the ranked teams in this week’s American Volleyball Coaches Association Top 15 poll.

The Mountaineers (5-3, 5-3 Big 12) are second among the teams also receiving votes in this week’s poll in what has been a successful season so far. West Virginia has won four consecutive games, including a season sweep over TCU for the first time in program history. It is also the first time WVU has won at least five conference games since 2017.

West Virginia is back in action Oct. 29 at No. 2 Baylor.
